Today is the first day of February, and it’s fitting that I’m making changes. I’m taking STARDUST MIRACLE off Free or 99 cents everywhere, up to the previous price of $3.99. As soon as Kindle ups the price to 99 cents, I’ll change their price to $3.99, too. It will probably take a few days for the price changes to go into effect, so if you haven’t downloaded STARDUST MIRACLE already, now is the time.
That’s not all. On Jan. 2nd, I started my 5th Miracle Interrupted book. Early this week I realized I was going in the wrong direction. I changed the entire plot, keeping the same characters – but it still wasn’t working. I finally realized last night that with the change in the plot I lost all reasons to keep the couple apart. The biggest conflict was the heroine wasn’t ready to live with the hero, even though they loved each other. That just wasn’t good enough to sustain an entire book.
I came to this realization just before I went to bed. I don’t get depressed often, but I was depressed about this. I didn’t know what to do, whether I should start another Miracle Interrupted book or go in a different direction. That’s when a flood of ideas came to me for two characters from other Miracle Interrupted books. Even ideas for the beginning and the big ending scene. I went to bed and kept hopping out to scribble more ideas. This morning, I woke up and thought of even more plot points.
None of that happened with the previous story. I’m excited about this, and I wasn’t excited about the story I was writing. That should’ve told me something. I did lose a month, but I’m going to try to write faster.
What about you? Any changes in your life?
